Title: BIG McGee creek trout
Post by: Topwater Terry on May 22, 2016, 08:40:22 PM
It was another great trip with Salim last weekend.  This time we actually stayed a night in Mammoth instead of the usual one day dash,   enjoying a lil pizza and suds at Giovannis.  Next morning Salim brought in local guide Joe Contaldi to show us the tricks of the trade in finding the big cutthroats that come up the creeks out of Crowley lake to spawn every spring.  We got them to 24 inches,  and even got one huge Loc Levin (kind of an "English" brown).  Got them all on San Juan worms with strike indicators.  It was great to see the snow and the creeks running strong again.  Great trip again!
